milk delivered to your door by the milk man, only silver top then or the tall sterilised milk, my mum used to put teacups out for the milk man to put over the bottles so the blue tits couldn't steal the cream from the top, and if they froze in the winter before you took them in the cream would rise up frozen about 2 inch out of the bottle like a creamy icepop lol

"I miss getting my milk off the doorstep, I miss the glass bottles and putting them back on the doorstep for the milkman. I miss having to shake them to mix the cream back in and I even miss the blue tits (birds) who would do

- used to share one with Dad. Thought it was really exotic food
